“Banning abortion is like rape – the violent assertion of male domination and male supremacist society over women, forceful and violent control of women’s bodies, in the most personal dimensions. Banning abortion means suppression of women by force of law and the state. It is institutionalized violence against women.”

Revolutionary Worker “A Revolutionary Communist Viewpoint on Abortion and Women’s Liberation” January 15, 1995
